We Want YOU (To Succeed!)

pexels-photo-205316-largeOne reason we got into the hosting business here at RFE Hosting: We had seen first hand the way that so many other companies in the industry treat their customers poorly, and we felt like business owners and website administrators deserve better. Contrary to the approach that many hosting businesses take, hosting should not merely be about passively charging “rent” in exchange for the use of a server: it should be an active, hands-on experience that involves working with and guiding customers; helping them make the right choices for their organizations even when it isn’t the most immediately beneficial option for the hosting company itself. After all, a host depends on its clients just as much as clients depend upon their host, and it is through a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship that true success can be attained on both ends.

This is why we never spare any expense when it comes to providing state-of-the-art technology. This is why we pride ourselves on boasting an exceptional uptime, and on providing an intuitive, user-friendly experience built upon features such as 1-Click WordPress installation, free and automatic SSL certification, and more. And this is why we offer truly affordable deals on powerful and versatile hosting options.

Whether you are interested in shared, VPS, or managed dedicated servers, RFE Hosting has the expertise to get you up and running, and building a successful website from the ground up. If you are not sure which of these options will be right for you, we encourage you to learn more about each topic by browsing our hosting blog, or to simply contact RFE Hosting in order to speak with a trained expert who can guide you towards the right decision. Either way, good luck, and we look forward to hearing from you!

You are More than a Paycheck (So Find a Host Who Values YOU!)

smile-color-laugh-black-157907-medium

Owning a small business is more than just a job–in fact, you could even say it’s more than just a career. It’s a life calling. It means pouring your heart and soul into a company, striving to provide your customers and clients with the best product and the best service possible, and working hard to lead and inspire your employees. In today’s world, one of the most crucial elements of running a successful business is creating a successful online presence. That’s why choosing a web host is a big decision.

Unfortunately, not all web hosts offer the services that you and your company deserves. Many hosts, in fact, prefer to make a quick buck by taking advantage of business owners who haven’t done their research. A sub-par host, though, can have negative effects that ripple throughout your entire business. It can turn away potential customers. It can devalue your brand by making you look unprofessional. And, of course, it can eat away at your budget without providing any real value.

A good host, on the other hand, can enable true and lasting online success by facilitating an easy, professional, and user-friendly experience for your customers, clients, contacts, the press, etc.

So with all these being said, what is it that makes RFE Hosting special? We work hard to prove to each and every one of our clients that they are special to us, and that we truly care about their success. This means sparing no expense when it comes to investing in the best equipment, technology, and staff. It means offering our customers an unparalleled level of individualized support available at all hours of the day and night. And it means backing these claims with a money back satisfaction guarantee.

So why stay with a host who doesn’t value your company? Visit RFE online today to learn more about the services we offer, and check out our online reviews to see why we are the company that your company deserves!

4 Criteria for Choosing the Best Hosting Company

pexels-photo-127627-largeThe phrase “hosting company” brings up over twenty-four million results on Google: so as virtually any small business owner knows, choosing between all those options can seem like an overwhelming decision. As history has shown, however, a quality web host can help facilitate online success–and, conversely, a sub-par host can do a lot to undermine success. Although choosing a host is important, it doesn’t need to be stressful. The following four criteria can help you tell the good, from the bad, from the ugly.

  1. Customer Service. We’re leading off with customer service because, in most cases, none of the other criteria will even matter if your hosting company doesn’t have your back. A good hosting company will care about your company’s success and work hard to ensure that you have the right hosting service for your needs.
  2. Uptime. Your website cannot build your brand, make sales, or inform customers if it is not online–and, in fact, having a non-functioning website is one of the best ways to turn potential customers away. This is why choosing a company with an outstanding uptime is crucial.
  3. Scalability. Over the years, there will be times when your company grows and times when you may need to temporarily downsize operations. A company that offers a wide variety of hosting options will be uniquely prepared to handle the ebb and flow of your online needs.
  4. Reputation. Last but certainly not least, you should rely on the advice of those who have come before you. After all, any company can claim to have certain values, but the only way to know for certain whether or not they adhere to those values is to get input from current and past customers. Checking out reviews is a great way of doing just that.

Here at RFE Hosting, we strive to be the best hosting option on the market, and a big part of this involves valuing the four criteria mentioned above. Visit our website to learn more!

Constructing the Perfect Business Email

woman-hand-smartphone-desk-medium

Email is the most common form of communication in the business world, yet many professionals still struggle to write emails suited for the workplace. If you find yourself unsure of your writing abilities, continue reading for some tips on constructing the perfect business email.

  1. Use a personalized email address

A personalized email address is simply one that is directly tied to your company, as opposed to an email address with its name tied to one of the major sites Gmail, Yahoo, etc. A personalized email is important because it clearly identifies you as a member of your company to the recipient of your email. Because your are a clear member of your company, you’re likely to be

taken more seriously.

  1. Have a clear subject line

You want your subject to be concise so that the recipient of your email can quickly determine the content and urgency of your email. An email with a long subject line, no subject line, or a subject line recycled from an older email has a better chance of being neglected by the reader.

  1. Build your email around around its recipient

The language you use in an email is often determined by who it’s being sent to. You may use a different tone to message your co-worker than you would your boss. It might also be wise to think about the cultural background of the person you are emailing. Different cultures have different ways of doing business, and so you should plan accordingly to cater to their expectations. It can be as easy as being more personable or more reserved in your message.

  1. Avoid slang and exclamation points

What was intended to be friendliness can easily be interpreted as you not taking your reader seriously. The use of slang reflects poorly upon you as a professional, and is actually a far less efficient way of communicating. In the same vein, the use of too many exclamation point can make you come across as emotional and juvenile. Remember that your mood in the email cannot be assumed by the reader, so you must create a clear one through your writing.

Get personalized email accounts with RFE Hosting. A personalized email address is the foundation for a professional email. Depending on what hosting package you choose, you will receive a minimum of 10 @yourcompany email addresses to be used by you, your company’s departments, and your employees.

Websites that Changed the World

Youtube

Preparing to start a website for your company or organization? The odds are good that you are more interested in brand building, marketing, and ROI more than changing the world–but still, a little inspiration can go a long way toward achieving any goal. In the spirit of starting a new website, here are a few websites that have changed the world forever!

Google. The most obvious pick of all. A search engine that truly can find the highest-quality, most relevant results on the web really makes the web a lot more useful!

Amazon. E-commerce owes a lot of its success to Amazon.com. Founded back in 1994 as Cadabra, Amazon remains the largest e-commerce site on the web today.

Wikipedia. Though Wikipedia is often criticized for a perceived lack of oversight, accountability, and accuracy, the truth is that the idea to compile all human knowledge into one multilingual, easily accessible source was quite important.

Hotmail. What’s so special about Hotmail? It certainly isn’t the biggest email provider, and it wasn’t the first. However, Hotmail did change the world forever: they were the first web-based email provider to gain widespread popularity. Before hotmail, email accounts were tethered to specific computers–meaning an email sent to your work computer would be completely inaccessible unless you were at work, and a home email would be inaccessible unless you were at home.

Facebook. Another no brainer. Once again: Facebook was not the first website to do what it did, it just did it so well that it became the standard bearer.

Youtube. Hosting video used to be rather cost prohibitive, and YouTube was the first company to truly allow its users to upload video freely and free of charge. This obviously had a very profound affect on the way that we all use the internet.

Getting Started. If you’re ready to embark on your own website adventure–whatever your goals may be–then one of the first issues you will need to address is hosting. Visit RFE Hosting online to learn more about what hosting options may be right for your needs.
